HONORING

Ralph Johnson

Vision Into Reality Award Recipient

The Vision into Reality Award salutes a leading architect who demonstrates visionary architecture that improves the quality of life and community in Chicago.

Ralph Johnson, Global Design Director at Perkins and Will, has designed some of the most iconic buildings in Chicago and around the world. His projects have been honored with more than 70 design awards, and in 2015 he was inducted into the prestigious National Academy of Design.

“Architecture to me is about layering the practical into the artistic. Some architects are known for a specific style, a certain form or expression; my work, while rooted in Modernism, is based on context — a concept that is the foundation of my approach.”

The evening’s program will feature a review of Mr. Johnson’s work,
presentation of the Vision into Reality Award, dinner and an auction.
Proceeds from the event will benefit SOAR’s community projects witha portion donated
to the Stanley Manne Research Center at Lurie Children’s.
Join us for a night of fun!
